शिखर वेध, is glad to invite you for Mahabaleshwar Tour on 12th and 13th May 2012
Hope 2 catch u wid us J
Fascinating Spots that we will be visiting are:-
It is a hill station situated in the Sayhadri range of Maharashtra state. It is situated at a distance of 285 kms from Mumbai. It is situated in Satara district at an altitude of 1372 m above sea level. Here we can see and enjoy cool mountain air, lush greenery, breathtaking valleys and Soaring Mountain peaks.
Tapola (Mini Kashmir):
Also known as the Mini Kashmir of the west is a 25 km drive away from Mahabaleshwar. The drive is magnificent, with two rivers flowing around the high hills Koyna on one side and Solshi on the other. Both these rivers meet at Tapola. The dam is the biggest in Maharashtra – Known as ‘Shivsagar’.The famous boat Club in Shivsagar is very popular for motor boats. One can enjoy boating here at nominal charges.
Points to visit at Mahabaleshwar :-
Panchganga Mandir :
This place has it in the hindu mythology that the five rivers Krishna, Venna, Gayatri, Savitri and Koyna show their appearance in the form of five close springs and make their presence here.
The Elphinston point gives a spectacular view of the Koyna and Sahyadri valleys. Down south to this point is the Hunter’s point which gives a splendid view of the Koyna Valley.
Move down a bit more and you come across something called the Arthur’s seat. This is the place that clearly demarcates the Konkan and Deccan territories in Mahabaleshwar by the barren deep Savitri valley to the left and a shallow valley to the right.
To the left on Arthur’s seat you have a series of steps that lead you to Tiger springs. This is where the River Savitri is supposed to emerge.
Monkey point and Savitri point:
Savitri point is one beautiful place to be. In fact I found this to be quite appealing – very little open space, not much crowd and then the Deep valleys were just inches from where we stood. It is actually a wonderful echo point. You get a resound of your voice after about 5 seconds!
